Getting product details...

From Outpost Coffee:

Mahembe is a privately owned washing station, owned by Justin Musabyiama who is also growing his own coffee trees. Justin has grown up in the local area and after moving away for some time decided to come back home and invest in the community he was from by building a wet mill on his father’s coffee plantation.

He has an 8-hectare farm of his own, and is buying cherries from the surrounding smallholders. This area is not as well known for quality coffees as some other parts of Rwanda but has great altitudes and an increasing number of farmers growing coffee at the higher altitudes. Nevertheless, we have found this coffee to be unique, with differences from other coffees in Rwanda in general, and with great potential.

The way Justin has organized the operations and the work he is doing on the ground on quality improvements and close follow up on production gives great results in the cup.
